Day on song

February 10, 2011

Israeli driver Alon Day has been selected for the first FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy.

Day, 19, was one of 12 men to come through a rigorous three-day process from a field of 19.

The successful group will now be coached in the car by former Formula One race driver Alex Wurz and his company Test and Training International, and out of the car by former World Rally Champion co-driver Robert Reid and his company Elite Sports Performance.

Over the next nine months, Day will attend six separate workshops at different locations in Europe.
